Watch: Nana Aba Anamoah details how she transformed Serwaa Amihere into an award-winning newscaster


The relationship between ace broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah and her mentee, newscaster, Serwaa Amihere is a sight for sore eyes.

The two have constantly caught the admiration of people on social media for the love and support they have for each other.

Before Serwaa Amihere became the multiple-award winning newscaster that she is today, she had to make some sacrifices and follow the good advice from her mentor, Nana Aba Anamoah.

In a recent interview with Kwaku Sintim Misa on his “KSM” show, Nana Aba Anamoah detailed the circumstances which led to her becoming the mentor for SAERWAA.

According to Nana Aba, Serwaa was different from all the other people she had mentored in the past.

“She’s my trophy mentee. Because the other people I have mentored, came from similar backgrounds so it wasn’t difficult at all. They were interested in the media, they were already knew what was going on they read the news. When I met Serwaa, Serwaa knew nothing about the news and that was a challenge for me.”

“I just felt that I’ve had people who know news, who follow the trends. This girl is different. Serwaa had a different lifestyle. Serwaa was the girl who will wear big hair, long lashes, long nails, skimpy dresses and she wanted to be in the media but she was lost and at the time every single person looked down on her. They all thought that this girl is useless she can’t do it. And when she came to me, she was introduced to me by my cousin Baisiwa Dowouna Hammond,” she told KSM.

Nana Aba also added that the first time she met Serwaa, she did not think they will be a right fit. According to her, mentoring her was a challenge she didn’t think she could accomplish.

“When I met Serwaa, I looked at her and told her no you are not for me. I don’t know what I will do with you and we went through a few conversations and listening to her I just saw a girl who was ambitious but she didn’t know where to start from. She was lost, she didn’t know where to go, she din’t who to talk to because every single person she spoke to if it is a man, would want to sleep with her…” she added.
